Default Growing hair for donation

I've always wanted to grow my hair out long enough to donate to Locks of Love. The last time I tried to grow it, my ends were absolutely awful, and I decided to chop them all off - about 2" of damage. Back then I was still straightening though, and apparently using the wrong products for my hair type. This time I want to do it the right way, and have healthy hair. I'm almost to the point where it will be getting into that "awkward" stage. Luckily my hair is a bit less awkward when I wear it curly. Right now it's just above my shoulders, so I have quite a bit of length to grow before I can do this. Right now I'm having a hard time knowing what to do with my hair, since I can't exactly put it up for bed, and if I stuff it into a sleep cap, I wake up with my hair standing straight up. I'm getting the moisture under control very slowly, so it's definitely not as dry as it used to be. I just wish I could snap my fingers and it'll be long tomorrow. lol

Has anybody ever grown their hair out specifically for this purpose? Any tips of keeping my hair healthy would be appreciated, especially at this awkward stage right now.

Good luck. I have never done this but I know people that have donated. And children who have received the wigs.
